On Monday’s we like to draw your attention to certain aspects of the Scottish Women’s Convention. For the next few weeks we’ll be telling you a bit more about the range of Seminars that are on offer.
Name – Sharon Dickens
Lives – Niddrie, Edinburgh
What is the title of your seminar at the Scottish Women’s Convention?
The title that I have been given is Endurance – running the race when the going is tough.
What is the seminar about?
I need to give it more thought but probably ‘How to keep on keeping on when life and ministry sucks!’
Who is the seminar for?
Any women who isn’t a deluded Mary Poppins wanna be – “Practically perfect in everyway”
Why is this area important?
Life is full of struggles we can’t avoid them basically there are times when it out right sucks. We need to learn how to run the race with endurance, relying on God and in doing so grow in our faith. We also need to teach young women how to do this well. Far to often as older women we perpetuate this Mary Poppins myth that we are practically perfect in every way and in life nothing phases us or is going wrong, it’s the “I’m Fine” syndrome magnified. We all know it’s not true or helpful.
